With the ‘Ahsoka’ Disney+ show nearing production, showrunner Dave Filoni is starting to fill out the cast. The latest addition is Ukrainian actress Ivanna Sakhno.
The actress joins the already confirmed cast of Rosario Dawson as the lead character Ahsoka Tano and Natasha Liu Bordizzo as Mandalorian warrior Sabine Wren. Lucasfilm have remained quiet on the casting and, while there is no solid information of what the role is, it is thought that she is playing a new character.
Sakhno is known for ‘Pacific Rim: Uprising’ and ‘The Spy Who Dumped Me’.
‘Ahsoka’ will be written by Dave Filoni, who will also be executive producer alongside Jon Favreau. It is also thought that Hayden Christensen will return in the series as Anakin Skywalker.
The show will be released in 2023.
